How do you know it's time to give up on a relationship?

Being in love undoubtedly feels good, but love isn't always the only thing that makes a relationship last. The feelings that come with romantic love can be so strong as to convince people to hang on to an unhealthy, unfulfilling, and unhappy relationship.

However, partners must learn to read signs that it is time to let go.

Ideally, if your needs are not being met, it is time to go. These needs can be emotional, like wanting quality time to spend with loved ones, or physical, like financial or intimacy needs. Besides, if your relationship leaves you unhappy because you spend more time fighting than talking, it may be time to end it.
